Thoroughly Modern Millie

$159

with MSAD #11 Adult Education

We’re off to the theater - the North Shore Music Theater in Beverly Massachusetts, that is! This award winning theater in the round is kicking off the 2020 season with Thoroughly Modern Millie  - and we have some of the best seats in the house for a matinee performance. “Filled with flappers, tappers, and a roaring good time, THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE is set in 1922 New York, when all the modern girls are sporting bobbed hair, heightened hemlines and entering the work force. Small-town newcomer Millie jumps headlong into a makeover and a dizzy plan to marry rich - until she falls for a penniless charmer. Her adventures are crowded with a flurry of jazz-age ladies, a runaway heiress, a nefarious landlady, and more. This Tony Award-winning Best Musical is a mix of madcap mistaken identity, high-spirited show tunes, and tap-happy dance numbers that will have more kick than bootleg gin. (nsmt.org). We’ll plan a stop for lunch (on your own) in Portsmouth’s busy Market Square where there are a variety of choices. Registration fee includes transportation and show ticket. 

Deadline to register is May 1st. No refunds will be issued after this date.
